Dead of Night

Dead of Night was a series of spooky single plays. Some were excellent, others were dodgy. Sadly we'll never be able to judge them all, because only three of them have survived. Return Flight, starring Peter Barkworth as a jet pilot who crashes his plane during a hallucination, is predictable. The Exorcism, which features Clive Swift and Edward Petherbridge, is frightening but annoyingly political. I haven't had a chance to see A Woman Sobbing just yet. The series title sequence always unnerves me. Someone or something, with severe breathing difficulties, races through a forest at night, surrounded by eery screeching sounds. All we see are the trees as they rush by, stained blood red… Very Dario Argento.
